WEANING PIGS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 20 November 1914

WEANING PIGS. Almost every breeder or pork pro ducer has his own special method of weaning pigs. The most important con sideration in all methods is to see that the pigs are so weaned that they do not cease growing or lose during this critic al period. Some pigmen prefer to allow the pigs to run with the sows until they wean themselves; others practice forced weaning at three or four months of age. A method very commonly advised is to wean the pigs a few at a time, taking out the largest, strongest ones at first and leaving the smallest and runtiest pigs until the last. Where this method can be conveniently carried out it is undoubtedly a good one, but as a rule circumstances on the average farm are such that it is not practical to wean the pigs in this manner. Pigs should always be encouraged to begin eating additional feed as early as possible. Wherever swim-milk is available this may be given in a pen into which the pigs only can go. A little shorts and maize may be fed with skim...

EXPORT OF BUTTER SCARCITY OF STEAMERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 20 November 1914

EXPORT OF BUTTER SCARCITY OF STEAMERS. A deputation from. the co-operative butter distributing companies waited on Mr. Tudor, Minister@r Customs, and brought before him;; position of the companies in regard°'t shipment of butter. They pointe ut that on ac count of the use of st .iers for military transport purposes bobms had been diverted from 28th P?tober to 17th November, and no stepners would be available for the shipment of butter to England. Four thousand tons of butter had -accumulated in the Australian States, and this would go to waste if not sent away immediately, Apart from that, the farmers would be obliged, unless relief was given, to obtain help from financial sources to carry on their business. Trade at present was com pletely disorganised. Steps should be taken to endeavour to secure some steamers. In reply, Mr. Tudor said he would consult his colleagues to see if space could not be obtained to meet the requirements of the butter cx porters.

LUCERNE AND THE BLOAT TROUBLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 20 November 1914

LUCERNE AND THE BLOAT TROUBLE. Among the few things that stand in the .way of the fullest success in the dairy business as regards feeding lucerne to cattle, one of the most seri ous is the liability of cattle to bloat and often die as a result of over-in dulgence in the luscious "king of for age crops." So much discouragement has resulted from dairymen from bloat that in. the past it has been considered little short of foolhardy.to try grazing it, and soiling has been the common practice of feeding lucerne in its green 'state. Aside from avoiding the bloat menace, the boiling system .makes a larger -yielil of lucerne from a given acreage possible, but against this is the heavy, constant amount of labour re quired, and also the fact that cows, when allowed to graze, will produce a better flowof milk. Just why a cow will bloat on standing lucerne and not after it has been cut is one of the things not yet understood, although the explanation probably exists in the fact that the standi...

THE MASTER PASSION. CHAPTER XXVI. MRS. SALOMONS "AT HOME." [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 20 November 1914

---- THE MASTER PASSION. CHAPTER XXVI. MBR. SALOMONS "AT HOME." Mrs. Salomons was "At Home" to half the world, judging by the numiber of carriages that stopped at her gate. The morning had broken in a still grey mist, but as the day advanced in its flower-crowned march, it was brightened by a blaze of sunshine, which dried the dewdrops on the roses, and made them bloom into more perfect life. The drive was pleasant when' once out of London, and the breath of the coun try smelt sweet after the' dusty streets; a lounge by the river. was tempting with the thermometer up to' 8$D degrees in •the shade, and it was-. no. use sitting in the Row to be grilled to the colour of a boiled lobster. These, and many other reasons com bined induced some staid dowagers to venture their precious charges amongst the frisky Bohemians on the green sward at Honeycomb Lodge.. The host was a man generally ignored by all; but the hostess was a pretty woman who went down with a certain set, and made her way i...

CHARCOAL FOR CHICKENS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 20 November 1914

CHARCOAL FOR CHICKENS. Too much cannot be said in favor of the use of charcoal in raising and maintaining chickens of all ages. Char coal pruifies the blood and absorbs the noxious gases generated in the diges tive organs and neutralises their effect. It should be used in the first feed given the baby chicks, and continued through out the entire life of the chicken. A small quantity should be mixed with the daily mash. About five pounds of charcoal to every four hundred pounds of mash is a very good proportion. Be sides this it is well to keep a two-com partment hopper of charcoal and oyster shell in the laying house, so that the hens may help themselves at will. For baby chicks mix about a large teaspoonful of charcoal in a quart of mash and you will find they will clean this up with the rest of their food. Charcoal is one of the best regulators known to poultrymen, but like every thing else must be used with discre tion. For instance, if a large quantity is put in the mash the'dro...

AUTOMATIC DEATH-DEALERS. SUFFOCATING SHELL FUMES. [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 20 November 1914

- AUTOMATIC DEATH-DEALERS SUFFOCATING SHELL FUMES. "This is not a war of men. It is a war of machines." A wounded officer was speaking, and speaking bitterly, for he had seen more than half the bat talion which he commanded swept down as the tall grass falls to the mower's scythe, by the terrible mitrailleuse. "There is an appalling soullessness about it," he went on. "It is savagely inhuman. Men turn handles and death flies out in 'large bundles' " (I trans late' literally to give the phrase its full effect, writes H. H Fyfe to the "'London Daily Mail.") "'What this battle has been-it is all really one battle, the Marne and the Aisne-no one. can ever conceive Who has not seen the battlefield. Men could never kill one another by heaps, by hecatombs. They would sicken at such wholesale slaughter. They would cry out, ' We are soldiers, not butchers.. A battlefield should not be an abattoir.'

QUICK FATTENING OF PIGS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 20 November 1914

QUICK FATTENING OF PIGS. "?Pigs weighing 100 lb. at four months," is the heading of a letter from a correspondent to "Hoard's Dairyman," in America, who says: "I have frequently read of quick fattening of pigs, and believe my experience may be of interest. I have a pure Chester White sow that farrowed sitxeen pigs; she raised twelve of them. When six teen weeks old these pigs were killed, taken to the market and sold. They averaged 93 lb. each, the total weight being 1,117. lb., and at 12%y cents. (6,%d.) per lb. (the market price), they brought me 139 dollars 62 cents (£20 10/ roughly). The sire of these pigs was a pure-bred Berkshire boar, which we find a good cross, as the pigs come white, and they do not have the smoky look that a Berkshire has. "We find it almost impossible to sell a pig that weighs more than 150 lb., and 80 lb. *to 100 lb. is the quickest selling weight to bring a good price. I once reached 13 cents. (6%d.) per lb. To get the pigs ready for the market at four ...

SUMMER FODDER CROPS. ADVICE TO IRRIGATORS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 20 November 1914

SUMMER FODDER CROPS. ADVICE TO IRRIGATORS. With the object of assiting settlers in irrigation areas in the cultivation of sunmmer fodder crops the Agricultural department has issued a bulletin dealing with the subject. In an article contri buted by Mr. Temple, chief field officer, is contained advice as to the character of the crops that should be grown and the conditions under which cultivation should take place. He has stated that it is not absolutely necessary to have graded land for irrigation, though it is always an advantage in securing a more even distribution of water; but with a canvas hose and lift-pumps fairly large areas can be watered and success is sured during a dry spell. Small pad docks, however, are essential, as stock should not be put on land being irri gated, and a few weeks' spell to the different crops leads to a greatly in creased fodder supply and carrying capacity. Seeding operations under the conditions specified can be followed well into January, though i...
